star this property answer text <p>NHS England has advised that it develops treatment criteria for cancer and other high cost drugs to support implementation of National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) guidance and to ensure approved treatments are available as intended, with access funded consistently across the country.

These CRGs have been established to support clinical commissioning across the entire specialised commissioning portfolio.</p><p>In the case of NICE Technology Appraisal TA429 for ibrutinib in previously treated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia and untreated chronic lymphocytic leukaemia with 17p deletion or TP53 mutation, NICE issued the following statement on 8 June 2018:</p><p><strong> </strong>“Given the evidence that was considered by the NICE appraisal committee, we consider it reasonable for the guidance to be read as referring to those patients considered unsuitable for retreatment.

The evidence will first be considered by NHS England’s Chemotherapy CRG, with advice and recommendations from this group then being submitted to the National Medical Director, Professor Steve Powis, for consideration.</p><p>During 2017/18, 1,193 Individual Funding Requests were considered by NHS England.

The UK's cross-Government approach to atrocity prevention includes the prediction and prevention of identity-based mass violence, alongside other forms of violence and instability, and is set within the Government's wider work on conflict prevention. Our early warning systems, such as our annual internal report on Countries at Risk of Instability, are complemented by shorter-term horizon-scanning tools, which assist policymakers in prioritising and directing Government engagement and activity on atrocity prevention and the Responsibility to Protect.</p> more like this
